Here is a missing piece of the remarkable posthumous legacy of Irne Nmirovsky, author of the internationally acclaimed Suite Franaise. The novelonly now assembled in its entiretyteems with the intertwined lives of an insular French village in the years before the war, when peace was less important as a political state than as a coveted personal condition: the untroubled pinnacle of happiness. At the center of the tale is Silvio: in his younger years he fled the boredom of the village and made a life of travel and adventure. Now hes returned, living in a farmers hovel in the middle of the woods, and, much to his familys chagrin, perfectly content with his solitude. As his narration unfolds, we are given an intimate picture of the loves and infidelities, the scandals, the youthful ardor and regrets of age that tie Silvio to the long-guarded secrets of the past.
